Plan B

As mentioned previously, I wanted to start college this spring, however, I owe my last school money so I need to pay them back first before I can obtain my official transcript. Plan B is to study business and marketing on my own time until I can start school hopefully this summer.

Lately, I have been well. However, I need to talk to my doctor about the side effects of my medication because I shake sometimes when I am not cold, and I breath heavy.

I applied for state medical insurance, but I will not know if I've been approved until a couple of weeks. I also checked out my credit report which was not well since I owe the school money. How do you improve your credit score?

My family is preparing for Thanksgiving. We will celebrate the hoilday over an extended relative's house, I decided to bring the candied sweet potatoes even though I do not know how to cook, my mother will help me prepare the dish. I am excited about the dinner, I love being around family and friends.

I'm so glad that you're feeling well. "Plan B" sounds like a smart thing to do.

Dear Ashley,

Thanks for the tag, I'll get on it soon. I've been away from my computer for a bit, so I need to touch base with everyone, yourself included.

On Thursday, NPR ran a program about ethnic side dishes for the Thanksgiving meal. A spin on Potatoes Au Gratin, was by an asian woman.

She used regular and sweet potatoes, taro root and coconut milk. It sounded delicious. You could look for it on their website.

I like to roast garlic and add that too my mashed potatoes, sometimes with fried shallots.

It's great that you can enjoy this holiday with your family. Many of us have lost that.

Hello, first of all great that you're feeling better. I'm not sure how it works in the US but in the UK in order to improve your credit rating you just need one bill or something like that on your name and 6 months proof that you've always paid this on time. Hope that helps!

Credit is built by putting things on credit and paying them off. Buy EVERYTHING with a credit card and pay it ALL off 100% at the end of the month so you don't get charged.

I'm glad to hear that you are going back to school. I hope you had a good Thanksgiving. Being with family and friends is magnificent therapy.

I do have journal that I carry around with me everywhere I go for whenever the writing mood strikes me. It's a really nice one that I bought from Barnes and Noble a long time ago. It's essentially a leather cover that I can refill whenever it gets full. I love it! I write more in my journal and sometimes don't see the point of writing the same thing on my blog.
